If i use e.g.

then any code that is dofiled or something has to obey to this, or it
won't work. quite a mess for any Standard Libraries.
Libraries suddenly depend on how the user wants to handle globals.

No: "global" respect scopes. dofile'd programas are not executed in the same
scope of the calling program; dofile is not include.

so global doesn't affect dofile statements at all? so when i do:
   global in T

where blah.lua is the following:

then this example would print out:

Really? Interesting. so i can't use global for sandboxes in which dofile would be allowed?

But i still think the following:
The beauty in lua lies in the simplicity which still provides uncomplicated and powerful ways of doing things. This global statement somehow doesn't fit. it really looks like an complex and complicated beast albeit the "simple" syntax.
